To evaluate the ship-handling skills and kansei of professionals and students, we studied physical performance and mental workload using a simulator and an actual ship. We demonstrated the effects of physiological indices based on professional performance and features as seen from their mental workload with heart rate variability, nasal temperature, and salivary amylase activity, and considered new practical education using professional kansei.
